Our Story: The year was 1901, and the Trojan Prince passenger ship sailed in to beautiful and legendary Ellis Island. After months on board, Antonio Esposito Bressi emerged from the ships hull to be greeted by New York city and a sight of the statue of liberty. He had temporarily left his wife and children in his hometown of Isca Sullo Ionio (Catanzaro, Calabria Italy) to get settled in their new home.
After working in the blast mines of central PA to pay his ships fair, the entire family came to America. From that point on, his sites were set on the creation of Bressi's Market in Kulpmont, PA. The journey was a long one, and it took quite some time until the needed funds were collected. But at last---after patience and an iron will---the construction began and the dream became a reality. This market would build upon the tastes and cultures of the people of Calabria, and later, the people of Europe in general.
